As reported by footballtransfertavern.com
After a superb season in the Bundesliga, West Ham signed Bayer Leverkusen and former Manchester United striker, Javier Hernandez on the 24th July 2017 for a reported £16 million fee.
The Mexico international signed a three-year deal and followed the then club record signing of Marko Arnautovic.
Despite many of the West Ham fans being ecstatic with the arrival of the former Man U man, he’s had a somewhat average career in east London so far and hasn’t quite managed to match the hype that some West Hams on Twitter had for him when he joined.
Amazing news!!!! Showing commitment and a hell of a lot of ambition!! LOVE IT!!! COYI
